Westminster 2016: Toy Group Winners

Wenrick
Winner in the Toy Group, Panda, the Shih Tzu

 

Winners in the Toy Group are as follows:

Best in Group: Shih Tzu, Panda
2nd Place: Pekingese
3rd Place: Pomeranian
4th Place: Italian Greyhound

I gotta say, I’m not a huge fan of little dogs, but I do love the long-haired ones like the Yorkie, Shih Tzu, and Maltese. They look like Cousin It, and their little feet scurry so fast under that fur skirt!

Up next: The Non-Sporting Group!

3rd Place: Saluki (sorry – I didn’t catch her name)
4th Place: Beagle, 15-inch, Victoria

My Redbone didn’t make the cut, but I still think I want one!

Up next: The Toy Group!

The schedule:
Masters Agility FOX Sports 1, 8 – 10 pm tonight
Conformation: CNBC 2/15 8 – 11 pm for Hounds, Toys, Non-Sporting, and Herding Dogs
USA 2/16 8 – 11 pm for Sporting, Working, Terriers and the all-important Best in Show

If you’re in Canada, Animal Planet will have the live shows on the 15th and 16th from 8 – 11 pm.

Can’t get to a TV? WKCLive.com will be live-streaming the breed judging from 8 am – 5 pm both Monday and Tuesday. The evening best in group and best in show competitions will also be live-streamed from 8 pm – 11 pm Eastern, with a time-delay on the West Coast so they won’t see it until 8 pm PST.

I can’t find anywhere that will be bringing us the obedience trials. Maybe next year?

As always, I’ll be live blogging both evening events, and I’ll try to post a few things from the agility competition tonight, as well.

Until next time,
Good day, and good dog!
